On Sunday morning August 31, 2014, Helix fans attending Dragon Con 2014 gathered to share their passion about the show. Our own Ryan Boyles had the opportunity to share the stage at the Helix Icebreaker Fan Panel with four other great panelists.
Ryan joined Tricia Ennis, Ryan Guthrie, Jessa Phillips, and Kitty Chandler to spend about an hour diving in and out and sideways through the universe and fandom that is Helix.
Warning: Nothing but spoilers here folks! If you haven’t watched season one in its entirety, you will probably want to steer clear of this episode until you do so!

There was some spirited conversation about many polarizing aspects of the show. Topics of note included:
